B’ville girls lax topples F-M, Brighton

Boys top Syracuse East, to meet C-NS in sectional home game

— Klaben led the Bees with a three-goal hat trick. Gentile and Maggie Monnat both found the net twice, with Frink joining Claire Monnat in the assist column. Moore picked up eight saves.

B’ville’s regular season concluded with a 13-3 mark, two of the losses coming to West Genesee, though a third encounter might yet happen in the sectional tournament.

Both sides would only have to win once. With a no. 2 seed, B’ville has a bye directly into next Thursday’s semifinal at CBA’s Alibrandi Stadium against no. 3 seed Liverpool or no. 6 seed Syracuse at 7 p.m. The other semifinal pits WG, the top seed, with F-M or Cicero-North Syracuse.

Meanwhile, the Baldwinsville boys lacrosse team, avoiding a letdown from Monday night's win over Cazenovia that ended the Lakers' 33-game win streak, played the regular-season-finale 24 hours later and beat Syracuse East 15-8 at Henninger's Sunnycrest Field.

Syracuse East blazed out to a 4-0 first-quarter lead. Sufficiently alarmed, the Bees caught up in the second quarter, gaining a 6-6 tie by halftime.

After a quiet third quarter, B’ville put together one of its best 12 minutes of the season in the final period, putting East away with an 8-1 outburst.

Luke Evans led the late surge, finishing with seven goals. Steve Petrelli backed up his pair of goals with four assists, while Joe Delia had two goals and two assists.

Ben Paprocki and Brian Smith each had a goal and two assists as Austin McCaskill and Ronnie Bertrand earned the other goals.

B’ville emerged with the no. 4 seed in the Class A playoffs and hosts no. 5 seed Cicero-North Syracuse Thursday at 5 p.m. The winner could get a shot at West Genesee, the 10-time defending champs, in Saturday night’s semifinal at C-NS should the Wildcats get past its opening round game with Central Square.
